Another One Bites the Dust
Gonzales resigns. Chertoff appears to be in line to replace him. This surprises me and strikes me as politically tone deaf. Chertoff has not exactly set world on fire as Homeland Security chief so I would not think he would be a sure thing to be confirmed as Attorney General (even though given his background he is vastly more qualified for that position than his current post). But that means that Bush will have to expend twice as many of his non-existent political chits as he will have to get two people through the senate confirmation process.
